Introduction
When one looks at a two-dimensional scene of
moving objects, one can usually assign a
velocity to each point in that scene with
little effort. This suggests that some early
visual processes are able to generate a two-
dimensional velocity map using fast parallel
computations. But it is not obvious how this
should be done, and we are currently trying to
understand how the human visual system does it.
If moving patterns were merely one-dimensional,
the visual system's task would be easier. One
dimensional motion can be signaled by cells
